NEW YORK - There are all kinds of gadgets meant to try to make life easier for parents and this latest one is being met with both cheers and raised eyebrows.

The New York City startup behind it says it meets all safety standards, assuring users that sensors guide it around obstacles and smart stop technology is used to slow and brake the stroller automatically.

Depending on the bells and whistles, the price can go up to $2,700.

No pushing required.
